Entering New Era: More Contributions

from China to the World


In the past five years, China has enjoyed profound and fundamental changes and remarkable achievements. Now, as the the second largest economy, China stands at a new historical starting point and embark on a new journey. Several days ago, the 19th CPC National Congress convened in Beijing has set direction and outlined a blueprint for China's future development. Socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era. The 19th CPC National Congress is an epoch-making milestone that is going to have a far-reaching impact on both China and the world.

The five years since the 18th National Congress has been a truly remarkable five years, under the leadership of the Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, Chinese people overcome difficulties, forge ahead and achievements have been made in reform, opening up, and socialist modernization. In the face of sluggish global economic recovery, frequent outbreaks of regional conflicts and disturbances, and intensifying global issues, China maintains stability, change its development model, achieves medium-high economic growth and tops in the world. China's GDP has become the second largest in the world grown from 8.2 trillion USD to 12 trillion USD and contribute over 30% of world economic growth. China now leads the world in trade, outbound investment, and foreign-exchange reserves. Every year 13 million jobs were created in China and more than 60 million people have been lifted out of poverty. In the past five years, China has shouldered more responsibility in global governance, contributed Chinese wisdom and solutions to world peace, development, cooperation and win-win progress. China share development opportunities with the world and jointly build a community of shared future for mankind.

The 19th CPC National Congress points out new theory and strategy for development in the new era. The Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era will lead Chinese Communist Party and people toward a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and achieve the Chinese Dream. The period between the 19th and the 20th National Congress is the period in which the timeframes of the two centenary goals converge. In this period, not only must we finish building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and achieve the first centenary goal; we must also build on this achievement to embark on a new journey toward the second centenary goal of fully building a modern socialist country.

At the same time, China will be closer to the center of world stage and constantly make new contributions for human beings. China will hold high the banner of peace, development, cooperation, and mutual benefit, and preserve world peace and promoting common development. We will actively build a community with a shared future for mankind, and work together with the people of all countries to build an open, inclusive, clean, and beautiful world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security, and common prosperity. China will positively develop global partnership and expand converging interests with foreign countries. We will adhere to the global governance system of achieving shared growth through discussion and collaboration and call on democracy in international relations. We will comprehensively push forward the construction of Belt and Road Initiative, build a new platform for international cooperation and inject new impetus for common development. China will firmly build a green, sustainable and low-carbon economic development system and play a leading role in global ecological civilization construction. We will further open to the world and create opportunity for the enhanced cooperation between China and the international community.

The 19th CPC National Congress is a milestone for China's development in the new era. The world will be benefited from China's development. I believe, the comprehensive and practical cooperation between China and Trinidad and Tobago will enter a new era for great development.
